, obviously at red cross and at fema and he is clearly leading the recovery effort right now. i think he has a little bit of a political advantage over mitt romney in the sense that mitt romney is just a candidate trying to talk about what is going on when the president has the advantage of actually being responsible for the recovery effort right now. and i think he is doing a good job. he has been praised by pub be republicans and democrats alike last few days for being responsive to their needs. he is going up to new jersey with chris christie to take a personal inspection what is going on. clearly this changed the race a little bit. i think at the end of the day this will only be an advantage of barack obama if there is perception that the recovery has been well-handled. it is not about pictures. it is about out comes. we have five days to see if he does a good job. jon: does the public, mary katherine, reach out, wrap the president in the warm embrace of a job well-done, nation coming together in time of crisis? >> i think this is a concern for both campaigns because any human bei
